Thanks for posting this Pig! Without a doubt one of the finest shows of 1974, and probably the best 3-set performance of the year. This is a staple of my collection. There's just too many excellent performances to do a song-by-song kind of breakdown. But my favorites (besides what you mentioned) include an energetic Half-Step, Jack Straw, and GSET, an outstanding China>Rider, and a soaring and intense Let It Grow. The jazzy third set jam of Truckin'>Mind Left Body>Spanish is one of the best sequences of the year, and the MLB especially is one of my favorites of all time; somehow it manages to be cheerful and mournful all at once.
